This TED TALK, by Russel Foster, explains the importance of sleep and puts the modern view of sleep on trial.  He  point out that modern inventions and the pace of life now create an artificial alteration on our sleep cycle, reducing this important biological rhythm to a ‘necessary evil.’

Think about sleep and give yourself the opportunity to enjoy and revel in it.  If you have issues with sleep, start by developing better sleep habits.  See the SLEEP HYGIENE RULES on page 128 of THE GUIDE……before you feel the need to resort to THE OSTRICH to get you 20 winks.
